Biodegradability is the ability of substances to be broken down into simpler substances by bacteria. People around the world use great numbers of non-biodegradable products, including plastics, medicines, and pesticides. The process of biodegradation is key to Earth's life cycle. If unchecked, the production and use of non-biodegradable substances could have huge effects on life on Earth. In this useful book, students explore what living "Green" means and how they can make good choices in using biodegradable products to reduce their impact on the environment. The book is filled with tips, such as what to look for in shopping for biodegradable products such as furniture, organic food, green cleaning products, and eco-friendly personal grooming products. Readers discover how to take part in eco-programs in the community and at school.
